The global plastic containers market size is expected to reach USD 82.00 billion in 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. The growing demand for rigid packaging from food and beverage manufacturers can have an excellent impact on the global market growth, states Fortune Business Insights, in a report, titled “Plastic Containers Market, 2021-2028.” The market size stood at USD 55.80 billion in 2020.


COVID-19 Impact:


The epidemic has impacted markets across the spectrum, with governments imposing restrictions on distribution and transportation and industrial closures disrupting the value chain. Due to a scarcity of manpower and a disturbance in the supply chain, the enterprises’ production capacities have been limited. As a result, demand for plastic container items is low. Moreover, China is a dominant player in the market. Regulations on the export of plastic products to and from the country have harshly affected the North American and European markets. In the wake of COVID-19, the consumer goods industry is facing a negative impact due to the primary focus on personal protective equipment, which, in turn, will dampen this market. Consumer goods companies are facing late deliveries and out-of-stock products. The pricing has increased from 5% to 10% as brands seek to find new vendors for bottles.
